How do I upgrade my CN1610 switches if i dont have network access? Can I upgrade by connecting with serial port?
See The Solution
connect via the serial port:
Configure the terminal-emulation program to use the following settings:❖ Baud rate: 9600 bps❖ Data bits: 8❖ Parity: none❖ Stop bit: 1❖ Flow control: none
other management tasks (transfer the file or set the management interface): https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMP1117874

You cannot be in the same place as the switch?
Thank you for your reply.
I can, but how do I transfer the upgrade files to the switch?
set an IP to the management port of the switch and connect it directly to you notebook
transfer the file from you notebook to the switch using a scp/tftp/sftp server installed on your notebook
"set an IP to the management port of the switch" How do I do that? Through the serial port? when I connect the RJ45 connector to both end how do I communicate with the switch? I dont know any of the steps. I am learning in the job 🙂
